Profiles not syncing

    Hi, since the WP 3.3/BP 1.5.x network upgrade, I’ve found that when I try to edit any part of my profile, on save it reverts my ‘Real Name’ to my username. I get the red error: ‘There was a problem updating some of your profile information, please try again.’

    The only way I can get my Real Name to show as ‘Joss Winn’ is to go into the WordPress edit profile page and add it there. All data reading to my name from the WordPress profile page is gone, except for my basic username. Once I add it in the WP profile page, the data is restored until the next time I try to edit my BuddyPress profile.

    The only additional plugin that might be interfering with this is

    However, on a separate install which also uses this plugin, I don’t get the problem.

    check your settings at:
    make sure option “Disable BuddyPress to WordPress profile syncing?” is set to NO
    otherwise, do what we all do, research the differences between your 2 installs – you will find it!
